Come to an illuminated fun run unlike any race you’ve ever seen. Throw on black attire and show up ready to walk, run, or dance your way through an interactive course–we'll provide the glowsticks and your favorite dance tracks. Stick around after you shimmy across the finish line for a post-run party of epic proportions. A portion of the proceeds go to a brilliant cause–as if you needed another reason to light up the night. Click Here to purchase your ticket!

What you get:

  • Admission to Nighttime 5K Fun Run + Glow Kit: Necklaces & Bracelet
  • After-Party Inside Citi Field
  • DJ, Local Entertainment, Cash Bar, & Food
  • Portion of Proceeds Used to Donate Solar Lanterns to Children in Somalia

You look and feel better when you're beaming, and while there are plenty of ways to ensure you've got that healthy glow, exercise and helping others are at the top of the list.

Give yourself a brighter day -- literally -- with this deal:

Head to Citi Field -- dressed in all black -- on Saturday, July 27 for a fun run unlike any race you've ever seen. We'll be loaded up with a ton of awesome glow-in-the-dark swag. As we run around the ballpark, music will be piped into speakers along the course, so we're all moving to the same beat. The last thing you should worry about is your race time -- walkers are totally welcome.

And to "light up the night" not just here in New York but across the globe, we'll be donating 500 solar lanterns to school children in Somalia without electricity, enabling them to read and study at night. If that's not enough to brighten up your evening, after the run we'll enjoy a massive glow-in-the-dark after-party inside Citi Field.

Glow For A Cause:

Partners for the 5K Dance Party are Mercy Corps and d.light -- two organizations dedicated to improving the lives of people suffering from the effects of poverty and oppression.

Mercy Corps is committed to alleviating suffering, poverty, and oppression by helping people build secure, productive, and just communities. The mission of d.light is "to create new freedoms for customers without access to reliable power so they can enjoy a brighter future" by replacing every kerosene lantern with clean, safe, and bright light. The organization hopes to bring light to 100 million people by 2020.
